Couldn't have been happier with our choice. The best hotel we've ever stayed in. It is quiet, small, modern, beautifully decorated, bedrooms are "enormous" (when comparing to regular hotels' bedrooms)... A good selection of drinks and food for breakfast. Staff is very welcoming and provided us with good tips. Mind the fact that this is a hotel that isn't centrally... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ilum, the staff was helpful, breakfast superior to other experiences in Buenos Aires hotels (this was our 5th hotel in BA i think). The hotel was clean, decor modern, fairly standard style for Palermo hotels it seems. However it felt like a little oasis and very quiet once you got in. I liked the lights... More

We stayed here during our last night in Argentina when we were traveling back from Patagonia. Ilum reminded us quite a bit of the W hotels. The bed was extremely comfortable and it had the nicest bathroom we'd seen during our stay. One thing worth noting was their incredible breakfast. We were blown away when we sat down to have...

There are just 12 rooms, so the quietness of the Ilum Experience Hotel is guaranteed. The few people working there, are more than what you need and they make your stay be really an Experience. As soon as you walk into this very nice hotel, you breathe Zen, peace and calmness. It is one of the few hotels I know... More

Everything was perfect during our stay in this hotel. To start, the hotel is so beautiful and elegant! Everything there was built to provide a calm and relaxing environment. The right hotel to stay in Palermo. Also, the hotel staff is very kind and helpful. 100% recommended!

Our introduction to a summer celebration vacation started at this outstanding hotel in Palermo. The location was within an easy walk to great restaurants and bus stops that opened our explorations of BA. From the moment we stepped through the door we were greeted and treated like special friends. Having traveled throughout the world, my wife and I have experienced... More

Just 12 rooms, each one quite beautiful and well laid out. The lobby and breakfast room are exquisite, with layered stones creating a 3-story high wall, plus glass and water everywhere. The dining area faces a lovely walled in garden and the included breakfast is indeed bountiful. I wish I had asked what kind of pillows they offer, as I... More

I can really recommend this very nice and small hotel. It is close to everything but anyhow a quite place in this noisy city. The hotel staff is also really nice and very helpful! We had a perfect time.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
